Laura and Kana are visiting at Mr. Yoshi's Mom's mountain home. She's been telling ghost stories and right now is telling a particularly frightening one, the unfortunate tale of Harry and Ernie. Harry and Ernie were a couple of bad kids who fought with each other over everything, even their hamsters. One day, Harry bet Ernie that he could let his hamster loose in the woods and find him again. It soon escalated into an all-out competition in which they let loose all the hamsters in the village. Harry and Ernie went into the woods to search for them, but something happened. They never returned to the village and all of the hamsters disappeared, except one. Laura, Kana and both Hamtaro and Oxnard are very frightened by the story, although they won't admit it. Just then, Mr. Yoshi arrives. He wonders what the girls are doing at his mother's and they explain that they had just helped her carry some groceries up the mountain. Mr. Yoshi's Mom says that she's repaying them for their kindness by telling the stories. Mr. Yoshi offers the girls some watermelon. Mr. Yoshi's Mom suggests that Mr. Yoshi might want to go outside so he isn't scared by the stories, but he shoots back that her stories don't scare either him or the girls. Hamtaro, however, begs that she not tell another one. His paws are still shaking. In the meantime, the rest of the ham-ham gang is down in the fields near the mountain. They're very hot, so Howdy suggests that they tell stories to cool themselves down. His story though is actually just a thinly disguised bad joke. Boss suggests that they climb the mountain. The cold mountain air should help them to cool off. As they head off, they notice Elder Ham sitting under a tree. They think maybe he's passed out from the heat, but it turns out he's just sleeping, as usual, although he claims that he's thinking. He says that the heat's good for him and he's thinking up all sorts of new stories. He starts to tell them one, but it puts them to sleep. He soon forgets what story he was telling and while he's trying to find his place, the ham-hams head off on their way. He yells for them to come back, but it's too late. Back at Mr. Yoshi's Mom's place, the girls are getting ready to head home. Mr. Yoshi offers to walk them home, but they say that they'll be okay. As Laura and Kana are heading down, the ham-hams are heading up. They're beginning to think that it was a mistake, though. It may be cooler on the mountain, but all the walking is just making them hotter. They find the girls and realize that they're heading the wrong way. Now they're all lost. At Laura's place, the parents of both girls realize something is wrong. They make a phone call and learn that the girls started heading home two hours ago. They should have been home long ago. Kana's Dad is very worried. Kana doesn't have any survival skills for such a situation. He wanted her to go camping outdoors, but she wanted to go to theater camp and build a website. She said that they didn't need to know how to use a compass. They decide to head off and look for them. In the forest, the clouds block the moon and now Laura and Kana don't have anything much in the way of light to guide them. They envision the ghosts of Harry and Ernie in a tree and panic. Hamtaro and Oxnard have separated from the girls and are worried too, when something starts tickling them. They think that it's ghosts, but it turns out that Boss and Oxnard were playing a prank on them. Hamtaro and Oxnard try to act cool, but they seem really shaken. Hamtaro's convinced that there's something out in the woods that's after them. The girls decide to stay in one place, but they see spooky lights and figure that they're ghosts, with torches. Eventually, they realize that Hamtaro and Oxnard are no longer with them and start calling out for them. They finally decide to confront the "ghosts" and it turns out that they're just Mr. Yoshi and his Mom. Elsewhere, the ham-hams are tracking some ghosts of their own. They end up tumbling down a cliff and nearly end up the water. Bijou has a very close call, but Hamtaro manages to save her. The ham-hams eventually end up on top of the "ghosts." As Laura, Kana, Mr. Yoshi and his Mom come to investigate the "ghosts," the ham-hams split, all except for Hamtaro and Oxnard. It turns out that the two ghosts were actually Laura and Kanas' Dads. They had to use torches because of problems with their flashlights. As for the ghost story, Mr. Yoshi's Mom admits that it was just something she made up and has been telling for the longest time. Then, the entire group and all of the ham-hams see strange lights in the distance. They all panic and run away. We see what the lights really were, though: Elder Ham! He got the last laugh on all the ham-hams, for not sticking around to listen to his story. That evening, Laura reflects on ghost stories, saying that you have to be careful with them. She thinks that it was an unusual day, but it was still fun.moreless
